​The Girl I Left Behind

This song is by Charlotte Martin and appears on the EP Test-Drive Songs (2002) and on the EP One Girl Army (2002).

The girl I left behind me
Was bad at being good
The happiest arsonist that ever was
The happiest communist that ever was

The girl I left behind me
You said she would do
I know who I want to be, be worthy of you
So why do I change myself to be worthy of you?

She's a needer, a bleeder
And she likes to be on top
She's a girlfriend, a whirlwind
And not so logical
But she's an ocean in motion
And you won't let her shine

The girl I left behind me
We've spoken once or twice
She says I have twice her strength
Well isn't that nice?
She says I can call her anywhere or anytime

She's a needer, a bleeder
And I know that says a lot
She's a girlfriend, a whirlwind
And not so logical
But she's an ocean in motion
And magical
You won't let her shine
She's an ocean in motion
And magical
You won't let her shine

You watch me as I fall apart for you
You watch me as I fall apart for you
And I waste myself, and I waste myself
And I waste myself

The girl I left behind me
Was bad at being good
The happiest arsonist that ever was
The happiest communist that ever was
